The thing that really intrigues me is that many people say, when talking about changing/ reforming/ revolutionizing education, to please “keep what is good”. Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water and to (especially) not experiment with children. All these assume that our current systems and habits in education are very well thought through and are well substantiated by scientific evidence. We at œ Operation Education have been researching this over the past year in our project #onderwijsvragen (“education questions”/ questioning education).
